Abraham confirms no MotoGP™ ride for 2020

Czech rider announced on Instagram that he has left Reale Avinita Racing

Via an Instagram post on Sunday 24 November, Karel Abraham has confirmed he has left Reale Avintia Racing and will therefore not ride in the MotoGP™ World Championship in 2020.

The Czech rider made his World Championship debut in 2005 in the 125cc category, before a move to the intermediate class came in 2007. Abraham would stay in the intermediate class until the end of 2010 – the first year of Moto2™ - which was a season that saw him claim two podiums, including a Grand Prix victory in Valencia before making the step up to MotoGP™ in 2011. Abraham has competed in the premier class between 2011-2019, with a brief WorldSBK stint coming in 2016.

Reale Avintia Racing have yet to confirm who will replace Abraham for the 2020 season, with the 29-year-old now saying: “I am very sad and disappointed, but need to move on and focus on what’s coming next.”
